INCF Software Carpentry course

Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills.

INCF will hold a Software Carpentry workshop immediately preceding the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. This two-day workshop will teach participants best practices in computational research and neuroinformatics. Participants will learn how to automate computational processing, program in the Python programming language, track versions of their software and processing with the Git version control system, and share their code with collaborators using GitHub. The workshop emphasizes practices that promote reproducibility and open science.
